Calabash – Waiting for the Shrimpers, 3 pics

My family loves to vacation in the southern beaches of North Carolina, usually Ocean Isle Beach.  Traditionally, we include a visit to the famous seafood restaurants of Calabash.  The local shrimp boats and fishing charters dock right behind the restaurants, ensuring the freshest seafood.

During our July visit, I excused myself while waiting to be seated to capture a few vignettes of the dockside.  These seagulls immediately caught my eye as they patiently awaited the daily return of the shrimp boats.  They are more than happy to clean up the scraps! I was attracted by the contrast between the orderly grid like shingle textures and the sky.  And, the seemingly random placement of gulls on the orderly shingle grid.

A quick word or two of advice.  First, after your meal in Calabash, make sure to stop in to Callahan’s of Calabash “everything beach” gift shop .   Also, while on the docks, be on the lookout for incoming seagull shit.  Sorry, I meant poop.
